Mount Gambier Police are offering free tool and equipment engraving sessions.

Anyone who would like to get their tools engraved or marked with an invisible marker can attend the Mount Gambier Bunnings trade area on Penola Road on Wednesday, July 27 or Thursday, August 4 between 5pm and 7pm to access the drive-through service.

If police locate potentially stolen tools, having them engraved or marked with something unique like a driver’s licence number will allow police to properly identify an owner and return the tools to them.

Engraved tools are harder for thieves to on-sell as they can be easily identified.

Keeping a list of the serial numbers on your tools can also greatly assist police in finding stolen property and locating an owner if the stolen property is located.

If you would like police to attend at your business for a separate engraving or tool marking session, contact Mount Gambier Police Station on 8735 1020.
